LINCOLN, Neb. (KSNB) - Chambers-Wheeler Central’s comeback fell short as they lost to top-seed Diller-Odell in the Class D2 state championship (26-24, 25-20, 14-25, 22-25, 16-14). It is the best finish for the Coyotes in team history.

In a back and forth fifth set, CWC jumped out to a 7-0 lead before needing to come back from 14-10 down. Morgan Ramsey and Tessa Metschke led the team offensively with 18 and 17 kills, respectively.

Diller-Odell was led by sophomore star, Karli Heidemann who had a match high 29 kills. It is the Griffins second straight year winning a title after they won the Class D-1 state title in 2019.

“I have eight seniors so they’re a very mature group," CWC volleyball coach Diane Kasselder said. "I just - you know we’re together a lot so - they’re just tight. It’s a hard game to lose because I know they want that back, but they’re a great bunch of kids. It’s going to be hard to go to the gym next year and not see them.”

This is the first runner-up since the co-op formed in 2010 for the Renegades.
